Quite frankly I planned skating in Gorkiy Park for long, but was plagued by bad weather (too warm, so ice melted) or lack of time. But finally I managed :) and it was wonderful. At 21:30 on Tuesday there were not that many people (not worth Internet purchase- no queues) and there was plenty of space on 18,000sqm of ice.... More

The Gorki-Park is located in the City Center of Moscow. During summer time many people are going there for a walk and to see and meet people. One of the best place to be in summer in Moscow.

It is a big park on the embankment of the Moskva river and right by the Garden Ring. It is not just a park, but also a big entertainment area. It was the first place in Moscow where you could experience a roller-coaster. The Soviet space shuttle Buran was gracing on the embankment for many years. But it was taken... More

It's just fun to visit the famous lark and stroll. You can go and enjoy some attractions too; my favorite was the big wheel similar to London eye with observation gondolas. You can see Moscow well from the top.

My family and I went skating in Gorky Park on our trip to Moscow in December of 2014. Would we go again? Yes - definitely. Would we recommend it to friends? Yes - definitely. In the winter, Gorky Park is turned into a huge ice skating park. Skating in the park was one of our highlights of visiting Moscow. If... More

Visiting Gorky Park was one of my favourite things from my time in Moscow. I was here at the end of December so everywhere was really snowy. It was a really nice place to walk around and there was an ice skating rink and numerous places to eat and buy drinks and snacks. It's only about a 10 minute walk... More

Not much going on in the cold but very pretty to see it. Cafe there saves you from the cold. Stalin figure is fun for a photo there!

This summer we have spent two days in Moscow and those days were really hot. So visiting Gorky Park was just perfect - we walked the shady paths under the mighty trees, along the lake ate ice cream, refreshed with cold water that was sprinkled right from the ground ... It is also interesting to see Graveyard of Fallen Monuments... More

Had a ball getting to Gorky PArk and walking the gardens and the promenade along the river. Would be a brilliant place in summer with all the sporty and social activities that would be available. Well worth the walk from town and explore the neighbourhood and then get such a present with the delights of Gorky Park.
